    I searched other posts and found a solution that doesn't seem to work on the Incredible. How can I rearrange favorites and edit the default action for each favorite?

    When you got to People and then to Favorites and long press a contact, the only options are:
    - Call Mobile
    - Edit Contact
    - Delete Contact
    - Send contact as vCard

    I don't see the "default action" inside the edit contact menu.

    Those were the steps providing in the ERIS forum and it seemed to work for ERIS users, however, I don't see any such option in the Incredible.

    Thanks in advance for all help!

    If you delete the Widget, its the "People" widget. TO set the contacts that are on that widget is to put whoever you want there into your "Favorite" category. Just like you have Personal, Work,etc. THere is a "Favorites" category so my Mom is in my family, and favorites so she appears on the widget.

    Yeah but how do you set the default action for each contact? Some on mine are set to automatically call, or some are set to automatically text ect. I've been trying to figure this out all day and can't get it to work.

    AHHH I finally found it.

    - Ok go into People, find the contact who's default action you want to change.
    - Go into their details page
    - Hit menu
    - Hit more
    - Set widget action

    TA-DAAAA!!!

    Also if you click on someones picture in the people list it will give you a little quick toolbar to decide how you want to contact them.

    I like this widget but wish the order could be fixed. I want the people I call the most at the top, not in alpha order... is it possible or is there a different widget in the market for this?

    I was trying to figure this out myself, for some reason I don't think you can though. Pretty stupid considering how customizable everything else is.

    is there a way to get rid of the "message" option when you go into someone's favorite. Makes it unecessarily cluttered to have message option for each phone line. Should be so easy but cant find out how to do it. Please help.
